POV: First-person dual perspectives
Once, I was nothing.
Hungry, abandoned, wandering, and alone. An adolescent street rat fighting for crumbs.
Then a chance encounter changed my entire world.
A man in an expensive suit asked me how much my life was worth.
I didn’t have an answer, because I didn’t know.
He asked if I thought it was worth killing for.
Impulsively, I said yes…
He found me, then fostered me, and in the interim turned me into a killing machine. A modern day La Femme Nikita.
Now, I only have one mission. To avenge the death of the man who saved me.
There’s an invisible war on the streets. Us against them. Family against family. Power against power.
They call me Ghostface Killer because they never see me coming.
I understand the weight of that danger.
Because now here I stand, three months pregnant with the barrel of a gun pressed to my head cause I never saw him coming…
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Holy wow!! 5 Stars to Ghostface Killer by author M. Never.
Stevie and Baz…….
This book was amazing! There was so much going on; all my senses got a workout! And to think I almost passed on reading this book because I was worried it would be too dark. Oh I have nothing against dark romance. My preference though is to read that genre in moderation. I had just finished another one that was extremely dark and violent so I wasn’t sure my heart could take another hit so soon. After eading several reviews on Ghostface Killer I was excited to read it. I’m so glad I did because it’s on my favorite top ten of 2017 so far.
Both Stevie and Bas had less than happy childhoods. I don’t want to say anything about their pasts because those circumstances are revealed gradually as the story unfolds.
I will say that I thought Stevie’s past was horrific and I don’t know how she survived to adulthood. Then when Baz’s issues are revealed I wanted to cry for him too.
My feelings were all over the place with this book. Every emotion, whether it was hate, fear, or love was extremely intense and all-consuming.
Stevie and Bas went through so many obstacles in order to have their HEA. There were many dangerous situations. Lies, secrets, and surprises added even more in the way of angst and conflict to the plot. A plot, by the way, that will keep you guessing. I admit to hating some of the sadder moments towards at the end. So much of what I believed to be true was not. At one point I couldn’t tell lies from truth or good guys from the bad. I was even afraid to trust the good guys. Take my advice and rather than make predictions, just enjoy the dramatic, erotic, and suspenseful ride of Ghostface Killer
One more thing I’d like to add is how much I loved Bas and Stevie. They were flawed, with tortured souls. Yet they were resourceful, strong, loyal, brave and completely bad*ss.
